Spice Islands® Pure Vanilla Extract
First, this recipe has all the ingredients that I use when making french toast. However, it did have more sugar (I used Truvia) and MUCH more vanilla, but then, it is "vanilla" french toast. And we loved the additional vanilla. This is an excellent recipe for basic french toast.
REALLY heavy vanilla taste which, surprisingly, bothered us. It made a good Sunday morning breakfast but I probably won't make it again.
I used light brown sugar in this recipe and increased the cinnamon a bit. I did need a little more butter than called for. I served this with homemade maple-vanilla pancake syrup. The kids inhaled this, they ate every single piece. They asked if I could make this again tomorrow.
Super easy and great flavor!
Some recipes bring back wonderful childhood memories and this is one of those recipes! My Mom made the most wonderful French Toast and this recipe is spot on...I guess that's why the classics never die! Crisp, light, fluffy and just plain delicious these were perfect for Sunday breakfast topped with REAL maple syrup. I served these with fresh fruit and OJ for a great start to the day!
Super easy and super tastey!!!
This made a nice French toast, but the vanilla was a tad overpowering.
This recipe is outstanding. After much research, I found that Challah bread is the bread to use when making French toast. I only make French toast with Challah bread now. It's sweet and soft and you can cut it as thin or thick as you want it. You can find it in most grocery stores in the bakery section. I'm not sure I would have rated this 5 stars if I used a different type of bread.
